Preplanning Services

Whether for yourself or a loved one, planning final arrangements in advance can help make an already difficult time significantly less stressful for your family when the time comes. Preplanning ensures that family members won’t have to take on the many decisions that funeral planning entails, gives you time to plan a personalized and meaningful service, and saves both you and your loved ones money.



Prepaying is not required. However, by taking care of the financial aspect of your funeral or memorial service beforehand, you not only relieve your family of the responsibility, but also save yourself from inflated prices in the future. By locking in current funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds have been set aside, survivors are protected from unexpected expenses.


We offer payment plans to help make costs more manageable. When a funeral home accepts funds in advance, they are required to have the money held by a third party in either a trust or insurance policy. The purchaser can also transfer pre-paid arrangements to another funeral home at any time.


When you decide to preplan, one of our advance planners will sit down with you to discuss your wishes and walk you through your options. Together we will help you create a funeral plan that meets your needs and works with your budget, whether you prefer simple arrangements or to finalize every detail of your service.


We are proud to serve the families of the Cape Cod area, including Bridgewater, East Bridgewater, Falmouth, Harwich, Marstons Mills, Martha’s Vineyard, Mashpee, Wareham, West Falmouth, and Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
